Professional Book Nerds

We're not just book nerds. We're professional book nerds! We are staff librarians who work at OverDrive, the leading app for eBooks and audiobooks from public libraries and schools. It's our job to discuss books all day long so we thought, "Why not share the conversation!" Hear about the best books we've read, get recommendations, and learn about the hottest books coming out that we can't wait to dive into. Every title discussed is available to borrow through public libraries. Get started reading at overdrive.com and subscribe to our podcast today!

On the 88th episode of the pod, Jill and Adam read through a few listener emails and offer book recommendations based on what you, the listener, has been reading. If you'd like some recommendations just email professionalbooknerds@overdrive.com with what you're reading or follow us on Twitter! 

 

We then dive into all the big books coming out in February and have a mini excitement-panic attack over how amazing the audiobook of Lincoln in the Bardo is going to be. All books discussed can be found below (click on the titles to sample them). Take a listen!
